It is merely a term we use to describe the size of a dog that is smaller than average. Most of our puppies range from 1.5 pounds to 3 pounds.
This is a very common misconception, but the answer is no. They are, however, equivalent to newborn babies and require a lot more care and attention than your average sized puppy. Because of their tiny size and delicate nature, their immune systems can be compromised, so you need to be a little more careful in what they come into contact with and how they are handled. As they get older, their immune systems grow stronger and they are just as healthy as any other dog. All our puppies must pass a physical from our certified vet and also CIFA government vet before they are shipped to their new homes.
The average life span is actually 8 to 14 years for a teacup or toy sized dog–actually longer than larger breeds of dogs!
Each puppy is priced based on the price we get from our breeders. Each puppy is priced based on breed, size, quality, gender, body structure. There are many factors and that is why there is a big difference in pricing from puppy to puppy. Our puppies do start at $3800 and up. This does not include shipping/nanny fee. Price for shipping is based on your location.
We work with a select group of licensed breeders in S. Korea. Our breeders have a consistent record of providing healthy and extremely smaller than average puppies. We screen out any breeders that don’t meet our quality of standards. We do not work with puppy mills.
Our puppies vary in age, but must be at least 3 months old before arriving in our care. Most puppies are ready to go after being checked by a veterinarian, but sometimes the tiny ones must stay a bit longer, so they don’t stress and we can make sure they develop proper eating habits and develop social skills for their new families.
